To Blog = To Share
I read the above lines somewhere and they truly resonated.
To share what sparks joy within, and sometimes not.
To connect with a community of avid writers, creators and nature enthusiasts.
To create what my soul guides me to.
To inspire myself, and others if I can, in my own little ways.
Yes, and just like that we are turning 4, on 6 December, 2020, Sunday!
Actually come to think of it, we’d be a lot older than four, (15 actually!) as I started blogging way back in 2000s on my blogspot account, NatashaMusing and then left it high and dry. Think I did not have the guts to bare my soul out to the world.
But, I’d like to acknowledge that eventually I managed to make peace with the idea of putting out my written words to the world. And thanks to some writer friends, I was prodded back into the blogging journey 4 years ago. Thereafter, there has been no looking back.
This year is a quiet birthday for NatashaMusing, unlike the last couple of years when a bunch of fabulous bloggers and friends kindly graced my blog with their wonderful writings and stories. No particular reason why I chose to keep it quiet this time. I guess I just want to spend time in my silent spaces, thanking all those people who have touched my life and made NatashaMusing what it is in the last four years.
If I start to take names, I would not do justice to the ones who have silently helped me grow. But this one’s for all of you who have showered your love, camaraderie and unstinting support. You know who you are. 🙂
Deep, deep gratitude for all your support, love and the imprints that you leave behind.
The last four years have been adventurous to say the least.
@ Thanks to NatashaMusing I wrote 2 books while participating in the A-Z Challenge.
@ Participated in multiple blog hops and blog-a-thons.
@ Written 420 posts in the last four years.
@ Enjoyed myself throughly co-hosting and then recently hosting #WordlessWednesday #WednesdayWisdom.
@ And much, much more!
I might have not been as regular as I used to be in the early days of blogging, yet this space continues to give me immense comfort, love, hope and happiness. I look at NatashaMusing also as a little legacy I will leave behind for my children, and grandkids to savour and cherish.
Cheers to celebrating the last 4 years in this sacred space of bonhomie and joy.
Raising a toast to that! <3 :-))
